I've had no problems with the tayda stuff.  Otherwise my favourite is the 24awg from

Dunno if anyone has seen or used it yet, but Tayda are doing custom drilling now....

Open Discussion / NGD - Player Strat.

After wanting a proper Fender since I started playing guitar in 1987, I finally decided that the Player Strats was the go.

I was really surprised how good it was - I'd read all the reviews and posts - but it exceeded my expectations.  I'd actually prepurchased a lot of the mods I had planned, but once I used it at praco, I was kinda on the fence about it.  The pickups are great, the tuners kept tune, but I still hated the grub screws sticking out of the bent steel saddles.  Apparently you can get shorter screws but the future is now, old man....  Bent steel.... bloody hell Fender, get out of your 1950's nostalgic boomer attitude.

ANYWAY.  I purchased this (pleked and set up by the shop before sending it out) and started modding...

Gotoh solid steel saddles, Fender locking tuners, Lace Sensors (Red Dually, Silver, Blue), Dimarzio lock strap...

The stupid thing is Fender released the Player Plus series about 2 days after I paid for this.  If they'd done those in straight black I'd be miffed as they have a better fitout imo (locking tuners as stock, 10-14inch compound neck), but also would have cost another $600.

This thing was good, but it's a beast now...

I've been on a break.  Dunno if I've made anything this year.  Most of what I have, I've sold.  I don't have that many left to demo either way.

All for it, personally.  It's pretty much what I do with pedals a lot of the time - My next one will have a JC120 paired with a Marshall of some sort...

Decided to stop mucking around with cheap second hand guitars and get a quality workhorse. Sold a stack of pedals, pickups, a guitar, and here we are…. Fender Player Strat, plek’d and all….

I'll mod it of course, but it doesn't need that much.  I have a set of Lace Sensors (Red dually, silver, blue), I'll probably get some locking tuners, and I'm definitely going to replace the saddles with solid somethings as I hate the height screws in the bent steel digging into my hand.  The volume knobs on the normal strat is in a stupid place, so I'll do something with that too (I also have a pickguard with no control holes on the way from alibaba)...

But yeah, great guitars.

I was going to take USPS suspension of sales to Australia personally until I checked out their page.  Basically, they're not shipping anywhere afaict.

I've had my 2 jabs of pfizer.  I've also told the missus to stop watching and listening to the news - it's stressing her out.

Hey.... does the Paladin have any cab sim built?

A JC120 pedal is something I've been kicking around for a while.  Tagboard have a vero layout... but your board looks great.  I might have to start building again...

I'm booked in.  Won't get it until next month.

I just use all those tiny monolithics for those values if I can get them.

I'm starting the new season of the handmaid's tale now that I have a larger chunk to consume.

We've kept up to date with it but haven't started this latest season because it's starting to get a bit repetitive.  How many opportunities to leave does June want to pass up?
